Happy Easter, thanks for bearing with me over the last 11 weeks, and apologies for the last update being so wingey - I was in a bad place (Delhi, to be specific, not somewhere I intend to return in a hurry), and am now in a good one.
Since my last update, I made it to my flight to Moscow, and eventually got to Heathrow - pretty knackered, without having brushed my teeth in many too many hours, but safely back on British soil at last, for which I never thought I'd be so grateful. I was through immigration in the blink of an eye, my bag first off the plane, and Mum & Dad kindly came and picked me up, so I was back at Marine Park House barely two hours after landing. I had an amazing just-over-a-day at home, got to see all my lovely siblings (and one soon-to-be-sibling!), got some great birthday presents, and was generally pampered. I also had one of the best night's sleep I've had in ages, and some great food - only wish my bowels were back to normal and I could have eaten a little more of it!
Lots of goodbyes, and after a quick game of putting (I came last) I was on the train and met Connie at Heathrow to catch the bus together back to Oxford. And since then, I've done a whole lot more relaxing, sleeping, just about regained my appetite, bit of unpacking, and generally doing anything but the essay which is due tomorrow afternoon. Couldn't be happier!
To all who've been in England and have kept in touch by commenting on the blog, sending emails, etc etc, thank you so much - it's made a long time mostly on my own seem as if I never was. And to those I've met along the way, here's hoping we meet again, and do stay in touch. Now also seems like a good time to say my new email address is email@example.com - my Oxford email address will expire in the Summer.
Until next time.
